— A Utah man who won a $380,000 Lamborghini in a convenience store chain's contest says he crashed the sports car six hours after he got it.

KSL-TV reports the lime green Murcielago Roadster will head to a Las Vegas body shop Wednesday for repairs, days after David Dopp won it from Maverik stores' "Joe Schmo to Lambo" contest.

Dopp says he was taking friends and family on joy rides Saturday when the vehicle hit ice or gravel and started spinning. The car hit some fence posts and came to rest in a field.

The Lamborghini has front-end damage, a punctured wheel and scratches along the passenger side.

Dopp wasn't injured in the crash and says the vehicle is insured.

He also says he'll be more careful next time.

In that situation I'd sell the Lambo and use the proceeds to buy 2-3 new more-practical cars, a new Harley, a big enough tool set to fix any eventual problem, and a few years' worth of taxes and insurance. The Lambo would never leave the dealer's lot.

From Joe Schmo to Idiot. Should have sold it, bet he won't be able to pay the income tax on it.
